Websites can send you notifications on both your smartphone and computer. Sometimes that is very useful, but not every website is just as good at it. In this article, we explain how you can turn the notifications per website off or on.
How to Subscribe to Website Notifications in Chrome
Websites can now send you notifications in Chrome. Also on your smartphone, provided you have an Android device. To receive these notifications, you must first give permission. When you visit the website in question, you will see a pop-up. With the screen, you will be asked if that website can send you notifications. For example when there is big news. You can then choose to allow it or block the notifications.
However, some websites send so many notifications that you may be fed up. It also happens that you accidentally gave permission, because you wanted to click away from the pop-up screen. But then again, how do you put these notifications out? Fortunately, that is still possible, although the menu in Chrome is well hidden. In this article, we explain to you exactly how to turn off website notifications for a specific source in Google’s browser.
